This paper summarizes recent knowledge on the palaeontology, biostratigraphy, correlation, sea level and climate history and isotopic geochemistry of the Ordovician rocks in the western and central parts of the East European Craton, in the area extending from the southern margin of the Fennoscandian Shield to the western margin of the Ukrainian Shield. The regional chronostratigraphic standard is briefly summarized and its correlation to the global standard of the Ordovician is addressed. A two-part correlation chart of ten areas with unique local Ordovician successions is aligned with the most recent international correlation standard of the Ordovician System and presented against the regular timescale. An updated summary of the evolution of the marine assemblages is provided, the principal gaps in the existing extremely rich palaeontological database are identified and the main bioevents are discussed.
